With the Meeker Classic behind us once again, and the kids back in school, it feels like fall is really upon us now, even though there’s still a full week until the official beginning of autumn. The woolly bear caterpillars (or woolly worms, for you southern transplants) are out in force, looking for winter dwellings. In the spring, according to Farmer’s Almanac, they’ll make cocoons and eventually become moths. The weather forecasting folklore is, scientists say, just folklore. If the width of the caterpillar’s black middle band tells us anything, it’s how wet last winter was. Happy belated birthday this week to Amy Que, Sept. 13.
